More importantly, I honestly enjoy the practice of law. I love helping people; I love making sure my clients get the right answers for them, within their means, and within their comfort zones. While the Law can be complex, confusing and at times seem unfair. I place great value on making sure that my clients get the quality representation and protection they need and I make sure my clients understand what is happening and why.
I specialize in protecting YOU. For over 28 years, I have practiced law in Southern California providing knowledge, experience and empathy with my highly personalized legal services. I focus on Family Law Matters, Trusts & Estates and Criminal/DUI Law.
I have the ability to clearly articulate complex legal issues in a manner that is understandable and comforting to my clients. My extensive expertise allows me to provide each of my clients with a “tailor-made” strategy to help remedy their legal problems. This approach helps clients deal with their real-life issues while understanding what their choices and available options are, even when those options may not be what they want to hear. I will work to get you the best result possible based on your particular facts and circumstances.
